Sorry for my english !

I want to compare the elasticity of different brushes, from different materials and manufacturers

Unfortunately I have only three shards and all of different weight (price) categories.

The hardest and less flexible knot in the boar from Proraso (Omega) This is my first shaving brush on returning in wet shaving
. Its seems to me
can be recommended to those who have stiff bristles and not sensitive skin, as well as those who love the effect of scrub.

Vladimir, thank you for the post and the photographs. They are interesting to see. I'm unfamiliar with the Yaqui brush. Of the three brushes do you have a favorite?

Thank you for the welcome ! 
I like synthetic, it is soft and my skin is better. It is difficult to say what a favorite given different weight category , but the fact that Yaqi ( made in China ) I like slightly smaller than a Chubby 2 , at a cost Yaqi like 10$ .
